Great location overlooking the old town and close to the gorge.. Lovely setting and decor. We were a bit disappointed with the limited menu but our food especially the slow cooked lamb shank was excellent. Decent wine list and not overpriced BUT we came away a bit disappointed without being able to say exactly why. Also we were the only... More

I'm surprised at the varying TripAdvisor reviews of Casa Santa Pola. Our party of six dined at the restaurant in mid September '13. We were looking for a place to have a special meal to celebrate the birthday of one of our party and we weren't disappointed. The restaurant is on several descending levels overlooking the gorge in Ronda so... More

Was really impressed by this restaurant. It looks a little dark and dated from outside but the food and attitude are anything but. All 3 courses, the wine and the music were excellent and original. The service was attentive but not intrusive. The night we went was very quiet - only one other couple but we didn't feel awkward. I... More

Loved this restaurant perfect setting right on the edge of the Ronda gorge- fantastic views a truly spectacular place for a romantic lunch, food was amazing both in presentation and flavours but have to say the service could of been better but never the less would go back again.

With such a fabulous view should this restaurant and bar give every guest a warm welcome. Nevertheles, they do not. After searching for any waiter to be seated, we found one anywhere at the back. After 20 minutes of waiting for any reaction of a waiter (for example: "hello sir, what can i do for you?") we decided to leave.... More

Tucked into a side street near the Puente Nuevo we discovered this restaurant when we were wandering around on the other side of the Gorge, it looked so picturesque. We were seated inside with spectacular views over the Gorge but there is seating outside - it was a bit too cold when we were there. While we waited for our... More

We noticed the lovely terrace of this restaurant while walking around the Puente Nuevo and decided to give it a try . We walked in around 8 p.m., with no reservations, and were quickly seated on the terrace, with absolutely stunning views of the Ronda gorge. It turned out to be a memorable meal. We both had a delicious gazpacho,... More

Called in for a lunch on a rainy day. The food and hospitality cheered us up no end. The service was excellent without being intrusive. The local and traditional menu was delicious. Of particular note were the Rabbit Stew and the Partridge liver pate - both excellent! We left, after sampling superb local cheeses feeling most uplifted and promising to... More

The staff is terrible and unfriendly. After 15 min waiting, we recieved kick out because of our 2 children. When we said to call the police - the "comedy" finished!

Good quality food, freshly cooked and attentive service. The gazpacho was lovely but the fresh cod was disappointing - too much fish and not enough legumes. Not cheap. Stunning view of the gorge however!
